The University of Manchester taught me not only solid theoretical knowledge but most importantly a very well-defined analytical mindset, which has opened my mind and widened the spread of career opportunities available to me. I am honoured to have been selected for the IET Prize and will certainly try to bring what I learnt at The University of Manchester everywhere I’ll go.”
